Time Magazine released its list of the 100 Most Influential People of 2019. Grammy Award Winners 25-year-old Ariana Grande 33-year-old Lady Gaga, and 29-year-old Taylor Swift were nominated with 13 others in the artist category.
Troye Sivan wrote a tribute to Grande saying:
Grande has released two record-breaking albums which were critically acclaimed a few months apart. Her album “Thank U Next,” remarkably, took only a few weeks to write.
Grande is breaking all of the established rules and is a force to reckon with, and she knows how music works in 2019.
Lady Gaga was tributed by musician Celine Dion who said:
I just love Lady Gaga, and she has one of the best voices in the entire world: convincing, powerful, sensitive, and passionate.
Gaga is one of the most innovate artists the world has ever seen. Gaga is a fantastic musician, performer, composer, and as everybody saw in “A Star Is Born,” she is an incredible actress.
Gaga’s legacy reaches far beyond show business. She will continue to inspire freedom and love around the entire world, for many generations to come.
Taylor Swift was tributed by Shawn Mendes. He said:
Swift makes anybody who is older feel immediately younger, and anyone who is younger thinks that there is nothing that can not be done.
Mendes recalled the time he opened for the star in several stadiums during her 1989 World Tour. He continued by saying:
I quickly learned the magic that is Taylor Swift does not come from dancers, lights, or fireworks. It comes from the connections she has with those in the audience who came to see her.
